Conflict-of-interest panel seeks input
The President’s Advisory Commission on Research Integrity and Professional Conflict Management hosts an open public forum Monday, April 13, 5 to 7 p.m. at the Cox Hall Ballroom, inviting any Emory faculty, staff or student to attend and address the PAC on relevant issues.

The PAC is not charged to consider institutional conflicts of interest, just individual conflicts, according to Paul Root Wolpe, PAC chair. Concerns, experiences, anecdotes, advice or suggestions are welcome. The PAC also invites comments in writing via PACRIPCM@emory.edu.

“Our goal is to ensure that Emory’s policies, practices and culture foster an environment in which we optimally manage inevitable conflicts of interest,” Wolpe said.

The PAC plans to present a final report with recommendations to President Jim Wagner this summer.
